Hi I want to set up a category - Firewood Supplier.  I can see some suppliers have done this so it must be possible, but the category does not appear in google listing.  Can you advise? Thanks silvanalogs2door, 15 Lime Tree Walk, Sevenoaks. silvanalogs2door.com 07801 217071

Hi Silvana,

I would recommend reaching out to Google Business support and get help in adding this category to your listing. You can always use the following link to contact Google https://support.google.com/business/?hl=en#topic=4539639&contact=1

Also, use this reference of another business currently using the category you seek https://www.google.com/maps/place/Underriver+Projects+Ltd/@51.2463407,0.2264244,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m...
OR https://www.google.com/maps/place/Logs+Direct/@51.2463926,0.1935938,13z/data=!4m5!1m2!2m1!1sfirewood...

@silvana l

 

I'm afraid you can't  add any category not yet listed in their default list of categories.

But I found such a category in Googles list fro the US (categories_en_US.csv ) as "Firewood Supplier" (its parametere is "gcid:firewood_supplier")

 

However in their default list for the UK (categories_en_GB.csv) the same category or its parameter "gcid:firewood_supplier" is missing.

I consider it a  bug and will escalate it to Google.
